On Monday evening, October 28, Peter Senick, Divisional Vice President and Director of Sales at AXA Advisors, spoke to students about beginning a career as a Financial Advisor in the North and South Carolina branch office of AXA. Senick noted that the financial sector is a dynamic industry that is currently facing growing market demand and demographic growth forces. He informed students that less than five percent of financial advisors are under 30 years old, with the majority over 55, and that there is a need for young people in the field.
AXA is ranked #20 in the world in revenues according to the Fortune Global 500 (for comparison, Apple is #19). Operating in over fifty-five countries, AXA employs six thousand advisors in 43 branches in the United States, and manages over fifty-five thousand households out of the North and South Carolina branch alone. The company focuses on financial services and products including retirement planning, investments, and life insurance.
If you embody the characteristics that AXA Advisors look for in a candidate, such as high integrity, inner drive, and a history of success, consider applying in WildcatLink for an interview when AXA returns to campus on November 6 (application deadline: October 27).
Senick also noted that ideal applicants have an entrepreneurial mindset, understand financial concepts, and are interested in sales. To learn more about specific job openings within AXA, email Peter.Senick@axa-advisors.com or Jennifer.Outen@axa-advisors.com.
